“I would like to thank the fans for the welcome and for how well they have treated me,” he told the club’s website.”
Brazil & Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus has signed a five-year contract extension with the Premier League champions.
Having arrived at the Etihad Stadium from Palmeiras in January 2017, the Brazil international has gone on to score 24 goals in 53 appearances in his first 18 months at the club.
The 21-year-old will now remain with Pep Guardiola’s side until 2023 and was thrilled to commit his future to the club.
“I would like to thank the fans for the welcome and for how well they have treated me,” he told the club’s website.
Jesus, who has 22 caps for Brazil, led the line for the Selecao at the World Cup in Russia but failed to find the net in five matches.
Despite that disappointment, he is again set to challenge Sergio Aguero for a starting berth in the City line-up as they pursue more silverware following their league and Carabao Cup success in 2017-18.
